The dynamics of stands In old-growth ponderosa pine (Pinus
ponderosa) forests on the eastern flank of the central Oregon
Cascades are Investigated. Age structure and spatial pattern of
ponderosa pine within the Pringle Falls Experimental Forest
Research Natural Area coupled with the fire history of the area
aid In Interpreting...
Several compounds have been shown to induce the mixed function
oxidase enzyme system of animals, and also to inhibit tumor formation.
Included in this category are several vegetables and isolated
vegetable components from the Cruciferae family. In this
study rainbow trout were fed blanched freeze-dried cauliflower,
broccoli, or Brussel sprouts...
Aflatoxin B₁ (AFB₁) is a mold-produced toxin which has been shown
to be a potent hepatocarcinogen in many animal species. Of the
species studied thus far, rainbow trout have proven to be the most
sensitive. Experiments were conducted to investigate various aspects
of AFB₁ metabolism in this species, including in...
Cyclopropenoid fatty acids cause several physiological disorders
in rainbow trout and rats. Rainbow trout appear to be more sensitive
than rats to the effects of cyclopropenoid fatty acids. Carbon-14
labeled sterculic acid with label in the methylene position of the
cyclopropene ring was injected into the stomach of rats and...
Cyclopropenoid fatty acids (CPFA) are natural components of
cottonseed oil, a major food oil in the United States. The ability of
CPFA to cause abnormal biochemical and physiological effects when
fed to laboratory and farm animals has prompted an investigation of
their effects on mice.
Between 0.05 and 0.55% CPFA...
Corn oil (CO) and Sterculic foetida oil (SFO) fed rats were
injected with [9, 10-methylene-¹⁴C]sterculic acid. Less than 1%
of the label was expired as carbon dioxide. The majority of the
label was excreted in the urine as short-chain dicarboxylic acids with
an intact cyclopropane ring. The major metabolites for...
Tyrosine kinases mediate response of blood cells to stimuli and small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) serve important roles as drugs in managing hematological diseases. In healthy B cells, the B cell receptor (BCR) activates a tyrosine kinase known as Syk, which then activates BTK, PI3K, PLC2 and protein kinase...
